Rhea Ripley says a top WWE star and her want to be the next Steve Austin and The Rock.
Dating back to their time in NXT, Rhea Ripley and Bianca Belair have a ton of history together.
The two women have gone one-on-one a few times, including being the final two participants in the Women’s Royal Rumble match in 2021.
Ripley and Belair were scheduled to face for the Raw Women’s Championship at Money In The Bank in July, but an injury to Rhea caused the bout to be cancelled.
Speaking to Joseph Staszewski of the New York Post, Rhea Ripley discussed her injury and feud with Belair.
“As upsetting as it was, I think it was a blessing in disguise. Bianca and I, it’s something that shouldn’t be rushed and we don’t want to rush it. Where that sort of felt like it’s gonna happen and that would be the end of it.”
In regards to their feud and what they want to achieve from it, Rhea said:
“We want our names to be etched in history. We want to leave our legacy where we can be in the ring together and make magic.”
“Bianca and I are perfect rivals pretty much. We’ve talked about it in NXT before. We’ve talked about it here at Raw before.”
“We pretty much want to be the next Stone Cold and The Rock. We want to have the storylines. We want to go out there and we want to steal the show.”
Rhea Ripley will team with Bayley, Dakota Kai, IYO SKY and Nikki Cross to face Bianca Belair, Asuka, Alexa Bliss, Mia Yim and a mystery partner in the Women’s War Games match at this Saturday’s WWE Survivor Series War Games.
For the Men’s War Games match, Roman Reigns will team with The Bloodline’s Sami Zayn, Solo Sikoa and The Usos to face Sheamus, Butch, Ridge Holland, Drew McIntyre and Kevin Owens.
